Since taking this leap into the college world, I can say that from the bottom of my heart, this was the best decision I have ever made. And it breaks my heart that my mother was not able to do this because she chose love over her dreams. Sometimes it feel like I’m living a dream that she wanted instead of myself, but with the memories and experiences that are coming along with this, I would not trade it for the world. The thing is, I want to learn from my mom’s mistake and not let a man come into my life and make me step back from a dream I want to live. Not only would I regret it in the end, but I know it will cause a drift in our relationship causing future fights over something that can easily be fixed. Following the decision would obviously be heartbreak, but if it is something that I planned out and really wanted to do, nothing and nobody should stop me whatsoever. If they really loved me, they would respect my decisions no matter what they shall be. Not only would I feel horrible for dropping my plans, it would also make the other person feel subliminally guilty for stopping me from doing something that could potentially make me a lot happier than I am at that moment.
